Shifting Priorities of Digital Native Security

May 27th, 2021 at 11:00 am ET

When shifting to or even starting out
as a Digital Native company, there naturally comes new security topics which
companies need to be aware of, including access control, auditing and disclosure.

But there has also been a shift in
older security topics as well, including some being less of a concern.
As a result, there’s a need to enable security teams with higher visibility,
scalability and expertise to adapt to an evolving digital ecosystem.

For example, should a modern security
strategy be based on the assumptions that source code will never be leaked,
or that “internal” networks will never be breached?

In this Roundtable, our experts will discuss:

1. The challenge for cybersecurity teams is finding effective ways to deliver
and maintain security at the speed of digital transformation.

2. How can modern security platforms can help organizations stay ahead
of potential threats?

3. How have the relative importance of security threats changed as
companies and products shift to being digital natives?
